News from Berlin. The Exciting Film Festival ‘UNKNOWN PLEASURES‘ is returning to Berlin. The independent films defy traditional Hollywood cinema, providing engaging and intelligent films. Independent cinema has developed into a major influence in American culture during the last 30 years.
In a break from Hollywood conventions, UNKNOWN PLEASURES is running for it’s sixth year, favourite topic themes this year are historical events, for example the opening film is titled ‘The Immigrant‘ by James Gray which powerfully depicts the story of immigration.
According to the programme organisers the films can be regarded as “pauses for recollection or as challenges to common views”. The group behind the festival, Unknown Pleasures seeks to offer intelligent and politically engaged cinema, far from the status quo.
The event takes place at BABYLON, Rosa-Luxemburg-Strasse 30, 10178, Berlin from January 1st until January 15th 2014.
